Wild Turkey in the New Year

Central Park's Wild Turkey is doing just fine.  Wild Turkeys have done well in other Manhattan parks, including Morningside Park and Battery Park, so there is no reason to worry about this bird.  Yes, there are risks for the bird, but are they any greater than the risks in suburban or rural area of New York state?



The uppertail coverts seem much more pronounced than in the late fall.
